A Lady to Remember


No, not Ruth Ginsburg or Babe Ruth or Ruth Buzzi. Ruth, as in the Daughter-in-Law Naomi. Ruth, as in the ancestor of King David. Ruth, as in the lady who has a biblical book named after her. This coming Sunday we will begin that book. Just some of the questions we will address: If all books in the Bible point to Jesus, where do we find Jesus in the book of Ruth? How can Ruth “return” to Israel when she was a daughter of Moab? What sort of “evangelism” do we find in the book? Why did Boaz marry Ruth when he was not obligated to do so? Why is the Hebrew word hesed so important in the book and what does it mean? Why was the book written in the first place? These are just a few of the questions we will address.

Sunday Bible study begins at 9:00 am.
